1st Quarter: NBA Milestones
Dirk Nowitzki passes Dominique Wilkins for 11th All-Time NBA Scoring:
What makes Dirk so unique? Is he an anomoly in the NBA?

How important is this record? Would KD be able to do this during Jordan's era?
LeBron James becomes the youngest player to score 23,000 points.
Does this deserve an asterix because other stars played college basketball before joining the NBA?
Who will end up scoring more points--LeBron or KD?
In The Post: Raptors Edition
Will Uriji makes a wholesale change on this team like Houston?
Which Canadian is most likely play for Raptors next season?
If Lowry commands 13 million, would you sign him or Vasquez at 6-7 million?
Should Bryan Colangelo recieve for Raptors success?
Who is Raptors frontcourt MVP: JV, Amir, or Patterson?
Should Vince Carter’s #15 hang from Air Canada Center rafters?

While many people, especially African Americans, were in support of Martin’s killer ( Zimmerman) being convicted, Bryant declared “I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,”. He shared these thoughts in regards to the Championship winning Miami Heat team’s famous hoodie photo in support of Trayvon Martin.

Kobe Bryant was recently asked byThe New Yorker magazine to weigh in on a widely publicized Miami Heat photo where the team posed in hoodies to show their support for the late Trayvon Martin and his family.
Bryant’s comments have been interpreted by some as an insult to the reigning NBA champions.
“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” he said. “That argument doesn’t make any sense to me. So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”
Bryant was quickly pounced on by commentators on social media.
“Kobe could’ve just shouted out love for Trayvon’s parents, said he couldn’t imagine their loss and kept it breezy. He didn’t,” tweeted Grio columnist Goldie Taylor.
“My issue is that Kobe reduces the Trayvon Martin outrage to blind racial solidarity, when it was about so much more than that,” added ESPN commentator Jemele Hill.
Bryant has yet to respond to the backlash towards his remarks.
